This seems like something that should have already been asked, but maybe not
because I don't see it in the mailing archives.

Is it possible to disable the html encoding?  Specifically, I'm doing the

CleanResults results = antisamy.scan(html);  // antisamy is an AntiSamy
instance I've initialized with a policy file

String cleanHtml = results.getCleanHTML();

if (html.equalsIgnoreCase(cleanHtml) == false) {
  // user input is not valid
else if (results.getErrorMessages().isEmpty() == false) {
  // user input is invalid

My test input is '1 < 2' and is getting translated into '1 &lt; 2'.
